Question about Vivitar Camera Lenses
How do I clean fungus in a vivitar series 1 canon fd lens, thanks
If the Vivitar has an FD mount for older Canons, then no, you'll need an adapter ring to convert the lens. They are available on sites like ebay

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot!"
Okay. I just wanted to scare you away from ruining a perfectly good (or nearly so) lens, but a learning project is a different matter. And a lens collimator is not that hard to build. One source is the book "Camera Maintenance & Repair" by Thomas Tomosy. I'm sure a quick Google search would show even more.
I did the same thing myself decades ago, taking apart a damaged zoom lens. Unfortunately, I never got it working properly again :-( But it was an educational experience, even though I didn't have a lens collimator...
